I See London, I See France...

A camera which can see through clothing from nearly 200' away has been developed - ostensibly for security use.

The ThruVision system will likely be used by airport security personnel and employs "T-rays" normally used by astronomers in the study of dying planets. It allows viewers to see through clothing but not wood or metal. It does not show anatomical details or emit harmful radiation; all people emit T-rays naturally. The resulting images are actually silhouettes of objects.

While similar systems have been developed before, this is the first model that works both inside and out.
